i have some patches to get the 1.8.6-wc1 client running on FC14.  i was
working on FC15 (which would be 2.6.38) but got distracted.  the
changes needed to get to 2.6.38 are a bit tedious.  the kernel warning
flags changed and some of the configure tests need to be re-written a
bit so they don't -Werror

My other option is to switch from RHEL 5.x to RHEL 6.x and use the whamcloud 1.8.6-wc1 patchless client (the latest RHEL 6 kernel also supports Interlagos). But I would first like to investigate using a 2.6.37 or later kernel on RHEL 5.
